If I did not know better about the room rates of Hapuna Beach Prince hotel and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, I might think 2 rooms for the price of 1 should attract many visitors. However, let's have a closer look at this Hawaii vacation deal from the Prince hotels: "Book the 1st room at published rates listed below and the 2nd room is FREE! Choose from select locations on Oahu, Maui and Big Island. Valid through 9/30/09."
Here are the published room rates:
Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki - rates start at $330
Maui Prince Hotel - rates start at $425
Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel - rates start at $415
Mauna Kea Beach Hotel - rates start at $700
I don't know about the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and the Maui Prince, but I can definitely speak for Hapuna Beach Hotel and Mauna Kea Beach hotel that the rates listed are nearly double the room rates from the past. We reported that the Mauna Kea room rates had skyrocketed after it reopened in December 2008. Anybody would expect that with the economy slowdown and Hawaii Tourism trying to attract visitors to Hawaii, Hapuna Beach Hotel would offer special room rates instead of raising those considerably and then offer 2 rooms for 1. So where is the promised Hawaii vacation deal?
Anybody familiar with Hawaii travel knows that Spring and Summer Hawaii visitors have been the average or even budget traveler. As the middle class is the same affected by the economy slowdown as everybody else, I have my serious doubts that this Hawaii Prince Vacaction promotion will sell additional rooms. And remember before committing to booking your Hawaii hotel, make sure that the quoted rate is really what you have to pay at check-out and no surprise resort fees will be added.
What's your alternative to higher Hawaii hotel room rates and resort fees for a Hawaii vacation deal in April? Best way to go these days are fully equipped Hawaii vacation rentals, homes and condos. Maui condo in Kihei are well-known among Maui visitors for their beach locations top amenities and affordability. Same applies to Kauai condos in Kapaau. We loved our walk to the beach, daily tennis and pool. Most of the Big Island condos are very fancy resort condos on the Kohala Coast, which are renting for the same high room rates as the 4- and 5- star hotel.
However, there are great fully equipped Hawaii vacation rentals and homes available, short 10-min. drives to the white sand beaches of Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea beach, with affordable low rates for April and May. Kohala Coast home owners are happy to offer you special rates for April and May 2009. You can cook at your own kitchen, have a Maitai on your lanai, enjoy all the goodies of a local farmers market, go online through free Wifi connection, make use of boogie boards and snorkel for free and so much more. Hawaii vacation rental owners share their aloha with you! A hui hou. Pua Hawaii Vacations

Best Weather in Hawaii

Are you one of those Hawaii visitors who always wondered what the island weather is like in April in Hawaii for vacation? April and May are definitely great months to save money in Hawaii on Airfares to Hawaii, island car rentals and most of all, on Hawaii rental accommodation. Vacation rental owners offer Hawaii vacation deals for April, which are too good to be turned down. Best of all: no extra Hawaii resort fees for parking, Internet, kitchen, snorkel gear and much more! Find Hawaii vacation rentals for April 2009 in our next post.
When you visit Hawaii in April or May, be prepared though to close your convertible when visiting upcountry Maui or Big Island because temperatures are definitely much colder there and spring months are more prone to upcountry showers. Hawaii coastal weather is most steady and sunny on the West coasts of the Hawaiian Islands. April may show have some unexpected sprinkles and trade winds picking up now and then on the beaches - more than during the summer months - but as soon as the sun makes it through the clouds, beach goers are back, at least for a relaxing beach walk.
We are happy to welcome back Bill Jardine, long time Hawaii resident and Big Island real estate agent, whose January 2009 blog article about the 'Hawaii Real Estate Market 2009' found a big number of readers, especially those who are looking into buying Hawaii real estate through a buyer's agent.
Here is what Bill has to say about 'April in Hawaii'. Bill lives on the Kohala Coast half the way between Waimea town and our best Kohala Coast beaches. See location on our Big Island map.
"Far out in the north Pacific, there is really nothing to impede the weather from doing whatever it likes. This is the time of year that our giant equatorial weather system begins to warm up and flex huge summer muscles. At the same time, the arctic polar bear that has been dominating the furious storms between Hawaii and the Aleutians is struggling to retain its grip with cold claws and icy winds. In Waimea we enjoy the blessings of sweet, fresh ocean breezes as well as the harshness of the winter gales that charge across the broad reaches of the empty sea. This winter has been windy, too windy for kites but perfect for whitecaps, and this month the great humpback whales are turning their heads north once more.
There has been a pod of sperm whales here lately, and it is very exciting to see them lying like great locomotives far out to sea. Their oblique spouts now stream in the wind as their great heads drive through the endless swells. There is something special about the great sperm whales in their self-imposed seclusion. They stay close together, speaking quietly to each other, and their secrets are complete. A fellow fisherman once told me that he had seen one steaming down the channel, as fast as a ship, splitting the whitecaps into a mist shot full of rainbows. That image sticks in my mind like nothing else.
Did you know that sperm whales do not use their teeth to eat? Only the great males have teeth anyway, and they just use them to fight each other when love is the prize to be won. Instead of having great teeth, sperm whales have giant muscles in their throats that allow them to swallow their prey whole, then crush it into submission. All this is done in the near perfect darkness a mile or more below the surface, as their calves play in the warm surface waters, watched over their aunties.
We note that this week the stock market has begun to repair, and we are expecting that it will return to health this year. This of course makes realty purchasing much more urgent in terms of getting the best price and financing."
We loved this Hawaii article at first sight. It reflects so much Bill's love for Hawaii and its special beauty which we sometimes take for granted. This what our Best Hawaii Vacation blog is all about - embracing all those many facets of Hawaiian island life and vacation! Aloha and a hui hou. Pua Hawaii Vacations
